The first ever UK Mental Health Nurses’ Day is on 21st February 2019.

Founded by the Royal College of Nursing’s Mental Health Forum, the purpose of the day is to celebrate the work of mental health nurses across the UK, and to promote working in mental health as a fantastic career choice for people of all ages and backgrounds.

Our aim is to work with all professionals, organisations and groups to celebrate mental health nursing in the UK – no single group owns this profession but together we can move it forward for the benefit of all in our care.
